I hope y'all don't mind me joining your forum. I have an 8 yr old that is stuggling in all subjects except math. I'm at my wits end as to what can be done to motivate her in school. Anything reading related overwhelmes her to the point of distraction. Instead of trying she guesses at her answers in order to get the work done quickly. She also freezes when she is time tested. She is also in what the school calls the ESE program for children with learning disabilities.. She isn't ADD or ADHD... she is not disruptive just uninterested in learning.. She can read, but is slow. Her comprehension is much better then it used to be, but she seems to really struggle with the basics.. Any suggestions?? From reading some replies to one another I feel confident someone will have some positive insite on how to help us..
